Au Courant Consultants: 9 Months in Review
Au Courant Consultants was officially born in April 2013 when Matt Allard decided to change profession after working for 10 years as an Executive Assistant for different senior level officials. The consultancy had already been operating without a name with contracts partner Joelle Saltel had been picking up and working on during evenings and weekends.
Meaning ‘In the know’, the term ‘Au Courant’ is an accepted English expression imported from the French language, making it the perfect name for a bilingual communications and project consulting firm that prides itself on knowing the latest news and trends before they hit the mainstream.
Since being in operation, Au Courant Consultants has grown to include new associates, which has allowed Au Courant to take on bigger contracts and work with people who are experts in their field. Welcome to Simone Hébert Allard, an expert writer and to PDB communications! We are currently in negotiations with other potential associates. Stay tuned for more details!
Clients that Au Courant have served over the last nine months have included La Liberté – Manitoba’s French weekly newspaper, Peace Days – Coordinating Committee, A Port in the Storm, Canadian Youth for French (CYF), Provencher BIZ, Association for Manitoba Bilingual Municipalities (AMBM), St. Boniface Hospital Foundation, ‘Right her Future’ initiative and Scatliff+Miller+Murray.
